When I think about my favorite holiday memories, my mind is flooded with images of big gatherings at my house with family and friends eating, drinking, and being merry. And while I love every minute of it, all of that celebrating comes with a downside: the mess. From crumbs in the carpet to muddy footprints on the floor, your work is far from over when the last guest leaves. That’s why it’s time to start thinking about your must-have holiday cleaning tools now, and first on the list? A top-quality vacuum. Luckily, right now Dyson is having a limited-time sale on two of its most popular models, the V8 Absolute and the Cyclone V10 Absolute.

If you’ve been pondering bringing home a Dyson (or giving one as a gift), this is the time to buy. From now through October 30, the game-changing brand is offering $50 off both of these top models, plus you’ll get up to $75 worth of free tools and free shipping.

For its size, and relatively affordable price, the V8 Absolute, an AT editor favorite, packs a punch. The V8 motor creates powerful suction that deep cleans carpets and, when fully charged, has a run time of 40 minutes. Its lightweight design (it’s just under six pounds) makes vacuuming a breeze, and it comes with all the tools needed to convert it to a powerful handheld, including a motorized brush tool that’s great for upholstery or cars. With a whole-machine filtration system and a washable lifetime filter, the V8 Absolute is a pro at capturing dust and allergens, and emptying the touch-free canister easy and no-fuss. Finally, the wall-mounted charging dock keeps everything organized and charged, so it’s always ready to go when you need it.

Dyson’s Cyclone V10 Absolute has more suction power and a longer battery life than most of their other cordless stick vacuums. It comes with a soft roller cleaning head that’s gentle on hard floors and a motorized torque drive cleaner head that deep cleans even the plushest carpets and rugs, so this model is a great choice if you’ve got multiple floor types in your home.

These deals are only available for a few more days, so don’t wait too long to add one of these bad boys to your cart. Consider it an early holiday gift to yourself.
